Comments about John Rickell
Shropshire in January
The Shropshire lane makes its uncertain way
Passed the old school house at Pennerley
Untaught for many a year,
The children now with siblings of their own.
Passed the old mine shafts
Where lead and silver long since ceased.
Crumbled walls where once
A poor man kept alive, but just,
A family far too large for comfort,
